Over 600,000 people have fallen in love with Yale senior Emme Zhou '23’s TikTok account, which documents her college experience and highlights her dining hall adventures. Over the Harvard-Yale weekend, Flyby brought her and her friends to the hallowed Adams House dining hall to learn how HUDS compares to Yale dining (Hopefully, it fairs better than our football team).

Flyby Tries: Intramural Sports

Coming into sophomore year, I was extremely excited for house life and all the new experiences that would follow (intramural sports!).

Apparently, the app “has been improved and is easier to use.” But any developer that has to explicitly state that its app is now “easier to use” is most definitely doing something wrong, and Passio GO!’s 1.4 App Store star rating proves as much.

Eliot House

Perfectly situated next to the Charles yet close to the Yard, Eliot has much to offer its residents. Eliot boasts elaborate House parties, enhanced dinners, spacious rooms, festive Steins, and classy Harvard architecture. The only downfall: your friends might get jealous of Eliot’s snazzy perks and the vibrant community that comes with them. But, c’est la vie when you live in the “material girl” of Harvard Houses.
